Hence the Republican Party use Sarah Palin to create some topics, using her beautiful image to attract the attention of media and public. Palin is young and beautiful, she is not corresponding with the old Republican Party’s appearance. Republican Party is conservative and fusty, and its awareness in gender is also traditional and conservative. Seen from the outside, for the Republican Party, using Palin is a tremendous advance in gender politics. Actually, Sarah Palin has been chosen because of her beautiful appearance. For the Republican Party, Palin is just a ‘tool’ or a ‘stunt’ for helping Republican Party to contend with the other candidates. According to Palin, S (2010:190, 204), McCain’s campaign headquarters never introduced Palin and her experience to the public, they ignored Palin’s aspiration, even isolated Palin from the media. They just publicize Palin based on their own needs.
When McCain failed, Palin became the ‘shield’ to protect the dignity of the Republican Party’s aides and staffs again. Palin, S (2010:252-253) mentioned that when the outside world is full of rumours, the Republican Party especially the senior staff officers who know all the truths do not want to clarify matters at all. The reason is some of them want to use the rumours to protect themselves. They even fabricated a lot of rumours to help them run away from the responsibility for some offenses, they just ignore Palin’s benefits. Because of the attack from outside and betrayal from inside, Sarah Palin became the ‘negative asset’ of McCain faster. In this case, Palin is just a ‘tool’ for the Republican Party to win the attention. They use Palin because Palin is a beautiful woman. This is the case to show the gender politics in the aspect of political party. This also implies that women should just be valued because of their gender of appearances, not their abilities.
